A lot of folks are buzzing about next year’s Anchorman 2, in which Will Farrell will reprise the role of Ron Burgundy almost a decade after he first had conversations with dogs, displayed his mad skillz as a jazz flautist, and gave us that unique translation of “San Diego.” Me? I’m not so sure he’ll be up to it.
No, this prediction has nothing to do with the fact that he single-handedly managed to make my previous ride uncool. (“You must respect me! I drive a Dodge Stratus!”) Best to pursue that vendetta some other time. “We” will also ignore, for the moment, that many of his comic movies lo this last decade have not done so well. Some comic vehicles work, others don’t. It happens.
